heard from a few gleeson looked decent have to ask why he isnt starting

He's had one misplaced pass that lead to St Mirren scoring, that is literally the only thing he's done wrong. Every other appearance he's made, he's looked neat and tidy, and in actual fact, his range of passing at times is superb, he absolutely deserves more game time in my opinion and I'll be extremely disappointed if we allow him to leave in January.
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

I have always said there is a player in Wilson, he has more ability than the rest of the strikers put together.

Whether we see it is another matter.

Totally on the money. There is a player in there. He wouldn't have got a five year deal @ 30k a week = 7.5/8m if he was a total nugget. But give an 18 year old that sort of money and the danger is that he loses hunger. Only once did he surprise me with great quality, the goal v. Hamilton. He's been generally toilet otherwise. A lazy cunt with zero future.

He changed the game today, looked up for it from the moment he got on the pitch.

Also Considine wasn't lb today. We played a back three.

Well well, his last game for a month and he was up for it? Cunt.

Doesn't matter what McInnes did with Consi for one day. He's been abused his whole career. Fine loon Andrew. Heart of a lion. Pity EVERY SINGLE MANAGER he's played under has been a total cunt.

Which bit about " He only has the stamina to last 60 minutes before he runs out of gas and needs subbed" do you not understand?

Yes the boy has talent, probably the most of all our midfielders. But until he can play a full 90 minutes he will remain a bench option only unless we are in dire emergency with a run of injuries to other midfielders.

The back three didn't actually do too bad all things considered.  I thought Ball looked better in there when logan got injured.   By all accounts this is a tough place to go but I felt we were pretty comfortable most of the game. That said Livi's attitude really impressed me,  2-0 down  with 5 to go they showed no sign of giving up. All in a great result and encouraging performance despite injury and tactical changes.

I wonder if Wilson is actually just finally responding to the competition of May and Cosgrove working well together rocket.  I wouldn't say he was electric today or any other ridiculous hyperbole but he certainly looked far more like the player we thought we had signed.  Good touch, attitude, awareness and knows where the back of the net is.  He could have had a second assist today too if May hadn't sliced it wide come to think of it. A few more performances like that and he may actually yet be a real asset to us.

TC I actually turned to my pal when Gleeson came on and said it should be fine as there's about 60 mins left of the game.  He did alright when he came on, was always looking to pass forward too. We haven't seen much of from an afc cm since maclean left.

I had £12 on us winning 2-1 at (9/1) so nice way in ending 2018 for what has been a very tough year it has to be said.  Biggest achievement attending Pittodrie and Burnley Europa League game suffering from dreaded depression plus anxiety.  Honestly not sure how we got through that journey but glad one made effort as love my European matches.

Great ball from Gleeson through to Wilson yesterday for goal, would like to see more from Gleeson. Stevie May again put in a power of work but deary me, :'( his finishing, snatched at one yesterday, which was a really good chance, recently on a couple of occasions he has been through one on one with the keeper & fluffed both.  Like others, dying for him to come good re scoring, but ...

Finally got aroudn to seeing the goals from yesterday, a great finish from Wilson and a great assist from him for the second, pity we haven't seen more of this in his time here.

That pitch at Livi is shocking and shouldn't be allowed in any professional league. I'm not against plastic pitches but not as poor as the one at Livi.

You are aware that was an attempt on goal from Gleeson rather than a well-executed pass?

I ended up making the last minute decision to go down to this game. I wasn't going to get involved in the #scenes when Wilson scored until DonsTalk's very own Stewart intimidated me into doing so. Disgraceful.

Also the restaurants in Edinburgh/Glasgow are generally far superior to the shite we have in Aberdeen ffs sake. McInnes oot.

Lol Tyrant  :laughing:
It was the ball that sent Wilson scampering up the wing for our second goal to which he refers  ;)
